Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that BasketBall Crazy Hoop actually falls under the category of a slingshot-style game rather than a basketball simulation game. There are two basic moves with the ball: Hold-and-aim, then release-and-shoot. The backboard and hoop move from side to side as the player (who can only stay in one spot) aims and releases the ball as it crosses his or her path. The graphics are colorful and directions are clear. With more than 30 achievements, this game is basic but with some fun changes as you advance in play.
Is it any good?
BASKETBALL CRAZY HOOP can get dull quickly, especially for avid basketball fans who are used to the action moving around the court. If your child is looking for something simple that just has the basketball look and not much real basketball simulation, this game may be fun. And it does offer cool features like the "Flame Ball," "Ice Ball," and "Comet Ball" to play with as a reward for making a certain number of shots in a row. The different playgrounds, such as "Suburb" and "Street Garage" don't affect play, just change the scene.
